    Duncan coral.

    I would take great care in snapping or cutting the branches of the duncan as the skeleton is very tough - using good croppers would get through the coralite - take it down from the apex of the branch well as close as you can

    Duncan coral.

    I used a pair of secatuers when i did it!! It worked a treat, only thing is they bounced off and went onto the floor on both occasions They were all alright though, i do not reccomend purposely getting them on the floor though

    Duncan coral.

    Thanks for the tips guys and the drawing.
    The type of duncan i intend fragging isn't the common type that is usually seen which i also have.This type of Duncan is the rare one which is why i wanted tips.This type never forms a tree like structure but will plate out horizontally from rocks.The polyps stand less than an inch and are generally pink under my T5s with bluey centres.This is a pic,sorry about the reflections but best i could do.
    I'm begining to think maybe hammer and chisel.

    Duncan coral.

    Check Eric Bornemans video - the saw he uses would be perfect for that - hammer and chisel is an alternative

    Place coral on a firm surface wih a towel or cloth - whack away and get the pieces into tank water.

    This type of duncan is coming into LFS quite frequent recently - put me down for a frag please

    Not too good.These things are solid.I used a hammer and chisel and the chisel was actually bouncing off the coral.I ended up only cracking it in half after several bangs which i've decided to keep.Was hoping to split it into smaller frags to swop but would probably just have ended up with a pile of coral rubble.
